Let’s Get Real: A Primer for Allies


Feeling compelled to effect change doesn't always translate into an easily implemented plan, especially when priorities and sensitivities can conflict. Before accepting a call to action, allies must first check their own biases, expectations and privilege in relation to the community they intend to impact. Explore important considerations that should precede allyship through a series of interactive group discussions and personal reflection. Leave with strategies to operationalize your advocacy.
